Can we all just get the heck out of here?

I mean America. Maybe we should just do a moneybomb to buy us up some big chunk of land somewhere else. Pick a place that is sufficiently lawless enough to leave our little square of earth alone. Can't do that here as we'll just get a bunch of Janet Reno grenades lobbed through our windows.

Maybe this is a pipe dream, but indulge a little. Make some suggestions on which countries would probably leave us alone. Closer the better would probably be ideal. We could welcome Paulistas from other countries as well.

I disagree.

I've been to South America several times and they still have the fight in them. Here, not so much at all. What you are saying is that cutting and running is bad. What most people don't know about "cut and run" is that it's actually a phrase that comes from sailing that is used to save your life in the face of certain disaster.

Here it is explained better....

The phrase originates in nautical usage. The OED quotes Elements and Practice of Rigging and Seamanship (1794) which defines the phrase to mean "to cut the cable and make sail instantly, without waiting to weigh anchor." Here cable refers to the anchor line, hence the anchor is lost. Run is used in the sense of "to sail downwind". In nautical usage however the term does not necessary carry the pejorative sense because cutting and running is sometimes imperative to save the ship in the case of an approaching storm for example.

It's admirable to say you want to stay and fight. But I bet all of those jews (and others) that got out of Europe before the lead started flying were glad they did.

When close to half the country thinks Mitt Romney is a conservative, and the other half wants socialism and/or is on the dole, we're freaking doomed!

I met more informed, liberty

I met more informed, liberty lovers in 3 weeks in VENEZUELA than I have in my entire life in the US. Let that marinate for a while.

Maybe the upcoming tyranny

will inspire many more people to be liberty-minded all of sudden. Sometimes you have to lose something to appreciate it.

I have a friend in Venezuela,

I have a friend in Venezuela, hates Chavez, has more guns than, well let's just say he's well armed and eyes wide open awake. Not something I can say about lots of people here in the good old ussa!
